CHICAGO Lance Armstrong finally cracked. Not while expressing deep remorse or regrets, though there was plenty of that in Friday night's second part of Armstrong's interview with Oprah Winfrey. It wasn't over the $75 million in sponsorship deals that evaporated over the course of two days, or having to walk away from the Livestrong cancer charity he founded and called his "sixth child.'' It wasn't even about his lifetime ban from competition, though he said that was more than he deserved. It was another bit of collateral damage that Armstrong said he wasn't prepared to deal with. "I saw my son defending me and saying, 'That's not true. What you're saying about my dad is not true,''' Armstrong recalled. "That's when I knew I had to tell him.'' Armstrong was near tears at that point, referring to 13 year old Luke, the oldest of his five children. He blinked, looked away from Winfrey and, with his lip trembling, struggled to compose himself. It came just past the midpoint of the hourlong program on Winfrey's OWN network. In the first part, broadcast Thursday, the disgraced cycling champion admitted using performance enhancing drugs when he won seven straight Tour de France titles. Story continues after slideshow. Critics said he hadn't been contrite enough in the first half of the interview, which was taped Monday in Austin, but Armstrong seemed to lose his composure when Winfrey zeroed in on the emotional drama involving his personal life. "What did you say?'' Winfrey asked. "I said, 'Listen, there's been a lot of questions about your dad. My career. Whether I doped or did not dope. I've always denied that and I've always been ruthless and defiant about that. You guys have seen that. That's probably why you trusted me on it.' Which makes it even sicker,'' Armstrong said. "And, uh, I told Luke, I said,'' and here Armstrong paused for a long time to collect himself, "I said, 'Don't defend me anymore. Don't.' "He said OK. He just said, 'Look, I love you. You're my dad. This won't change that.'' Winfrey also drew Armstrong out on his ex wife, Kristin, whom he claimed knew just enough about both the doping and lying to ask him to stop. He credited her with making him promise that his comeback in 2009 would be drug free. "She said to me, 'You can do it under one condition: That you never cross that line again,''' Armstrong recalled. "The line of drugs?'' Winfrey asked. "Yes. And I said, 'You've got a deal,''' he replied. Postal Service cycling team included witness statements from at least three former teammates who said Kristin Armstrong participated in or at least knew about doping on the teams and knew team code names for EPO kept in her refrigerator. Postal rider Jonathan Vaughters testified that she handed riders cortisone pills wrapped in foil. Armstrong said in the first part of the interview that he had stayed clean in the comeback, a claim that runs counter to the USADA report. And that wasn't the only portion of the interview likely to rile anti doping officials. Winfrey asked Armstrong about a "60 Minutes Sports'' interview in which USADA chief executive Travis Tygart said a representative of the cyclist had offered a donation that the agency turned down. "Were you trying to pay off USADA?'' she asked. "No, that's not true,'' he replied, repeating, "That is not true.'' Winfrey asks the question three more times, in different forms. "That is not true,'' he insisted. USADA spokeswoman Annie Skinner replied in a statement: "We stand by the facts both in the reasoned decision and in the '60 Minutes' interview.'' Armstrong has talked with USADA officials, and a meeting with Tygart near the Denver airport reportedly ended in an argument over the possibility of modifying the lifetime ban. A person familiar with those conversations said Armstrong could provide information that might get his ban reduced to eight years. By then, he would be 49. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because he was discussing a confidential matter. After retiring from cycling in 2011, Armstrong returned to triathlons, where he began his professional career as a teenager, and he has told people he's desperate to get back.

Tip No. 3: Track With a Goal in Mind continued."I used tracking to become my own coach," says Cheng, a San Francisco entrepreneur. "Each day, I used video to record my performance, and I watched it to find what I was doing that worked and what was tripping me up," Cheng says. She recommends focusing on your work in progress, not on your final performance. Focus on just one change or improvement until you master it, then move on to the next. You may need to tweak your goal, too. Cheng also benefited from some quantified data during her training period. Based on data tracked by the SleepCycle app, she changed her sleeping habits. As a result, she was more alert, which improved her ability to learn those new moves! Tip No. 4: Turn Data Into MotivationFun makes a difference, too. "We all like to feel like we're winning or succeeding. So look for apps or trackers with a gamification angle," says Alex Ince Cushman, who tracks everything from sleep to exercise to time on his computer. "For example, I set my tracker's target goal to 3,000 points a day. [Points are how the Nike FuelBand keeps track of activity.] There have definitely been days when I was close but not quite there, and I ended up squeezing in a short run to get over my self imposed arbitrary line," Cushman says. Many people work harder when they have a number to push against. Quantification counting and measuring can urge you to spend more and more time working toward your goals. Tip No. 5: Seek Advice If You Need ItDon't discount the value of community, especially if you have a significant goal. "Increasingly, physicians, nutritionists, and trainers are incorporating tracking into their offerings," says Paul Abramson, MD, a QS enthusiast. If you end up with more data than you know what to do with, they can help. Nike Roshe Run Men Black Solar Red,Learning how to find the best walking shoes is not as simple as it used to be. As walking has gained popularity as a form of exercise, a wide variety of shoes meant specifically for walking has appeared on the market. The unique designs and features of many of these shoes have evolved from research into the mechanics of walking. This research has shown that the stresses put on the feet in walking are different from those exerted in other exercises such as jogging, tennis, and aerobics. If you walk, it makes good sense to select shoes designed specifically with walking in mind. When you shop for walking shoes, keep in mind that the basic shape of the shoe should conform to the shape of your foot, and the toe box (the area around your toes) should be high enough, wide enough, and long enough to accommodate your toes comfortably. But the fit isn't the only factor to consider. You'll want to find shoes that cushion and support your feet as they hit the ground with each step. Shoe design, however, often involves a trade off between cushioning and stability. A well cushioned shoe may not control the foot's motion adequately. An extremely rigid shoe, on the other hand, may not provide the shock absorption and flexibility necessary for comfort. If you have had stress fractures, joint problems, or back pain in the past, you may want to opt for a shoe that stresses cushioning over stability. You'll want a shoe that has a well cushioned insole (the shock absorbing lining inside the shoe upon which your foot rests) and midsole (the part of the sole between the insole and the very bottom of the shoe). If, however, your foot tends to roll inward (pronate) as you walk, you may want to pick a pair of shoes that stresses stability. If you don't know whether you pronate or not, take a look at your other shoes. If the outer side of the heel and the inner side of the forefoot (under the big toe joint) show a great deal more wear than the rest of the sole, chances are that you pronate excessively. Most people pronate to some extent, but the more your feet tend to roll inward as they hit the ground, the more support you'll need to prevent problems. So look for a more rigid shoe with a sturdy heel counter (the back of the shoe that wraps around your heel). To test the firmness of the heel counter of a shoe, try squeezing it. If it collapses, choose a different shoe. To get the best of both worlds, look for a shoe with a midsole that contains two or three materials of different density (called dual or triple density midsoles). In these shoes, the softer, less dense materials cushion the feet while the firmer, denser materials stabilize them and make the shoes more durable. You may also want to try a shoe that has a heel cup (a padded, cuplike area inside the back of the shoe that cushions the heel and holds it in place). The sole of the shoe should be flexible at the ball of the foot. If you can bend the shoe in the middle (below the arch support), however, you won't get enough arch support and your feet may tire easily. The outsole (the very bottom of the sole that comes in contact with the ground) should be made of a durable, springy material like rubber yet should be soft enough so that if you press your fingernail into it, you can see a slight indentation. The outsole should also be patterned to provide traction. Instead of the flat bottomed sole found in running shoes, some walking shoes feature a distinct heel. This type of walking shoe may be a good choice for people who are prone to developing aching arches, midfoot pain (plantar fasciitis), and heel spurs. Some walking shoes have a "rocker" sole that is, they are thicker under the ball of the foot than are other types of athletic shoes, and they curve upward in front. This design helps support the foot as the body's weight is transferred from the heel to the toe. The uppers (the part of the shoe above the sole that covers the feet) should be made of soft material that "breathes," allowing sweat to evaporate. Leather, or a combination of leather and nylon, is a good choice. The uppers should have a padded heel collar (the part of the upper surrounding the opening of the shoe) and tongue. Some shoes feature a notched heel collar that helps prevent irritation of the Achilles tendon.

Tips for moving houseplants from outdoors to indoorsMany gardeners keep their houseplants outside during the summer and move them inside for the winter. Typically this is a good strategy but with moving plants in during the winter the plants. Nike Roshe Run Men Black Solar Red Build a freestanding arch for a science fair. Arches provide support for bridges and other building structures. Arches work by distributing the weight across an arch's curve. When stress is applied to a well constructed arch, the pieces of the arch press closer together, transferring the stress to its neighbors and reducing the stress that any one piece bears. While you can make an archway out of several materials, wood is easier to shape than stone. For an arch to work properly, the pieces must interlock. Once you have researched the shapes of your blocks, carve them out. Assemble your archway lying on its side on top of a plywood board and then raise the arch into place. Put together a poster board explaining how arches work and how the shape of the blocks transfer stress. Build a windmill for your science project. Choose between an indoor fan powered model of windmill or an outdoor wind powered windmill. Stick to a simple bare bones design for your windmill so that you can explain what all the parts do. Design your windmill before deciding on what you will power with it. That way, you will make reasonable decisions about cost and time for construction. Determine empirically how much energy your windmill produces, using a multimeter. In addition to the windmill, prepare a poster explaining how windmills work, the different types of windmills and Ohm's law. Cranes are essential building equipment. Cranes lift building materials up to where they will be used and support prefabricated items while they are attached. Make your hydraulic crane from some wood, a scoop, tubing and a few syringes. Have some work for your crane to do at the science fair. Scoop a soft pile of potting soil and move it with your crane. Or, instead of a scoop, add an electromagnet on the business end of the crane and move metal parts. Prepare a display to explain how hydraulic pressure works. Science Projects on Electromagnetic Cranes An electromagnet is a magnet that requires an electrical current to create magnetism. This is useful technology because an operator can control. How to Teach Kids About Hydraulic Systems Because of the generally low attention span of children, parents and teachers are having an increasingly difficult time teaching complicated and technological. When choosing a science fair project, it important to choose a project that can be followed through with and that is of.
